Restaurant Brands also said Axel Schwan, who was named as the regional president of Tim Hortons for Canada and the United States in October, would oversee the Latin America region as well.

Tim Hortons' remaining international operations will be led by the company's existing global leadership team.

The company's biggest chain has been struggling to grow sales in a competitive breakfast space despite adding new coffee and lunch offerings, while rolling out breakfast sandwiches with Beyond Meat Inc's plant-based sausages in select Canadian cities.

Restaurant Brands' September-quarter results were hurt by Tim Hortons' performance, while its other fast-food chains Burger King and Popeyes did well.
